    Default Custom Boat Canvas Shop (Replacement or Repair)

    I'm looking for a shop that can replace a 'torn' marine canvas enclosure on my boat. I think it's beyond repair as the tear has pretty much ruined the cover. My enclosure snaps on to the windshield frame and has a tubular frame. I can remove the canvas but I need to get a replacement without spending an 'arm and a leg'. There's probably some shops in the lower 48 that can make a duplicate enclosure if I send them mine. I'd rather keep it here in Alaska and have it done locally. Does anyone have any recommendations either way ... can you recommend a local shop (or a lower 48 shop with good experience). Thanks.

    There was a gal in Juneau (Lori, last name perhaps Lloyd) who did amazing work. She's moved to Kodiak and taken her shop with her, last I heard.

    Just FYI to anyone wanting any canvas work, Silverstreak told me mid summer was as soon as they could do my boat, Busters is first week in June. My boat is scheduled for June 4th if I remember correctly.
